I, Mrs. Havovi Dastoor, am wife to Dasturji Khurshed Dastoor, Head Priest of Iranshah Fire Temple at Udvada. I am a doting mother to our three lovely children – Parinaz, Shanaya and Daraius and am extremely proud of them.
Before taking a sabbatical for parenting, I have been a working professional in Systems Management at several corporates in Mumbai, India including ICICI Ltd.
Fulfilling our dream of Parsi/Irani Zoroastrians congregating from all over the world at our holiest pilgrimage place of Udvada, Gujarat to celebrate our wonderful Zoroastrian religion and creating everlasting friendships across borders, I, with the unstinting support of my husband Khurshed, have successfully held three editions of the IRANSHAH UDVADA UTSAV, lovingly called IUU. IUU is a grand and vibrant three-days event, held bi-annually to showcase the amazing talents and skills of our community members as also to eagerly know more about our Zoroastrian faith, customs and rituals.
Now, with time at hand, I am currently pursuing training to become a successful Image Consultant and a Soft Skills Trainer.
I am very passionate about nurturing and counselling children and adults to help steer them in the right direction in their lives.
I strongly believe in the age-old adage –‘You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough!’
